2016 Women’s Wellness Celebration Presents "Mental Health Matters: Opening Eyes. Opening Minds"Tuesday, October 11, 2016 at Ted Constant Convocation Center.
The 2016 Women’s Wellness Celebration (WWC), Mental Health Matters: Opening Eyes. Opening Minds., is aimed at bringing awareness to mental health issues faced by adolescent girls and women. Local policy makers, social workers, and nonprofit organizations will hold workshops on the mental health impact of violence against women, bullying, and low self-esteem. Together, we will openly discuss how we as a community can improve access to mental health services by exploring ways in which effective, integrated models of behavioral health care may be provided to address mental health issues for adolescent girls and women.
This conference is open to the public and you can register HERE.
The Women’s Wellness Celebration (WWC) is a not-for-profit conference, aimed to inspire and empower women within the Hampton Roads area to make healthy life choices for themselves and their families. Through training and educational programs focused on emotional, physical, and spiritual wellness, the WWC helps women understand the impact healthy mindsets and healthy habits have on the future of our children and our communities.
In 2008, ARDX, a healthcare management consulting firm located in Norfolk, Virginia, recognized the need to cultivate healthier homes and communities for our children. More importantly, we understood the influence that women hold in our children’s lives and that effective change not only starts at the top, but starts from within.
The WWC provides women the opportunity to step away from their daily routines and to take time to focus on themselves. By focusing on their well-being, women build a stronger individual who will positively impact their households and the community and in turn impact future leaders – our children.
Each year the WWC partners with a local Hampton Roads 501(c) organization to raise awareness for a particular wellness issue facing the community. All proceeds from the conference are donated to the partner organization to continue strengthening healthy behaviors within the Hampton Roads community.
